The cupcake:

The filling:

Home sweet home!!! Cheesy Cheesy

We were totally inspired by Craftster member fjordtjie woven cat baskets (link) & decided that our little one needed her own. Starting out with blue funfur & foam from our stash, we cut 1" wide strips of each attaching the foam end to end to create a thick 'piping' to weave the funfur around.

As things began to take shape we knew it had to be a cupcake! Smiley Smiley At about half way up we switched & continued with white shag fur. The 'cherry' was woven using red funfur. Multi-coloured popmpoms were hot glued on to add 'sprinkles". Our cat Key loves sweets (especially lollipops), so we made a purple fleece blanket embroidered with candy & a turkey (we like to call her our turkey) for the floor.

The house itself is pretty big & we aren't sure where we are going to put it yet, but it amuses us to no end when Key gets inside it. We gave it to her today & since she has only left to eat we'd say Key thinks it's pretty sweet!!! Grin Grin

I would be tempted to try this or wist it, but my cat would never get inside a cupcake.  That is by far the cutest cat bed I've ever seen and your kitty looks adorable in there.

It also looks nice and sturdy...

It's quite sturdy. We reinforced the door by weaving pieces of cardboard on both sides & 1 at the back for stability.

I did not expect a cat bed when I clicked on the link of the giant cupcake.  I have just wisted this even though my cat doesn't sleep in any of the three beds here.  She's a bit spoilt though, and maybe she needs a cupcake.  This has to be one of the best cat beds EVER, one of the best things I've seen on Craftster even.  I love it muchly.

Thats great! its the perfect birthday gift for a friend who have cats and loves to make cupcakes. I hope it will be that nice as yours. (it takes a while when I start to make it, her birthday is a couple of months away.)

I have one question, how much 'rope' (foam) did you use?

We've been sticking our heads in wondering what it would be like to live in a cupcake too!!! Cheesy Cheesy Seems cozy!

I have one question, how much 'rope' (foam) did you use?

This project used approx. 3.25 yards of fur (2 blue, 1 white, 0.25 red) & about 40 yards of foam strips. These were made by cutting a large sheet (ie. foam mattress) into yard long pieces 1" x 0.5" & gluing them end to end. Hope that helps! Smiley Smiley

This is truley the coolest cat bed I have ever seen!!!  I'm not sure if my cats would sleep in it or try to eat it?  I'm pretty sure they'd fight over it.  But I love this bed so much!!!  I want one for each of my 5 kitties!!  Each a different flavor!!
